Description

See the Financial District through the eyes of Alexander Hamilton, the penniless immigrant from the West Indies who rose to become the first Treasury Secretary of the United States. Tour General Washington's former HQ, walk past the site of the World Trade Center, and conclude at the Federal Hall.

Meet your guide, a New York expert and history buff, to walk the moneyed streets of the Financial District and learn its story from the perspective of Alexander Hamilton, who immigrated to the city as a young man and became one of its most powerful political figures. Learn about the city's founding as a Dutch settlement and its eventual arrival as the world's financial capital.

Visit Franches Tavern, a striking brick building on Pearl Street that served as a headquarters for General Washington during the Revolutionary War. There, hear about the farewell speech Washington gave to his officers—Hamilton among them—at the end of the war in 1783. Stand in front of the entrance to the New York Stock Exchange. Every day, more than US $150 billion is traded within these walls, a number that was scarcely conceivable in the age of Hamilton.

Finally, visit the Federal Hall, a national memorial built on the site of the first U.S. capitol building. George Washington was inaugurated here, and it's also Hamilton's final resting place. Reflect on the life and times of a man who shaped the history of the country.
